Description:
1954 Topps Ernie Banks #94 PSA Mint 9. This ever-popular, debut-year collectible honors the man who epitomizes the spirit of the Chicago Cubs, and who has almost single-handedly kept enthusiasm for the franchise alive for several generations of devoted fans. The Hall of Famer, former Negro Leaguer, two-time National League MVP (1957, 1958) and 500 Home Run Club member is seen here with his ever-present smile firmly in place: with just a glance at this superb card, the observer can almost feel Banks' "Let's Play Two!" enthusiasm.

This Banks rookie card is one of just 13 examples at its level (two higher), a standing that places the showpiece item securely among the top one percent of the 1,833 copies holdered to date by PSA. As expected, every facet of its presentation is impeccable, with no disturbance at the corners (even the impossibly delicate and dark green, full-bleed tips on the reverse), abundantly satisfactory image alignment, and a notable absence of the '54 Topps issue's vexing "print specks." Superlative from all perspectives! Here's the quintessential Cub, shining forth from his great career's finest-imaginable gum card memento.
